know so many people are asking, how could this happen. there were reports there were complainted against this building. it was not zoned to have people living there. but that was the case. so what went wrong here? how can it be prevented from happening in the future? >> the city of oakland is still looking at its history with this build and working with potential live/work artist spaces. chunt spaces for our artists. we have a vibrant community in oakland that we embrace. we want to make shoe preventing disasters like this in the future. at this point, we have brought in federal partners with atf. and they have determined what they believe is the area of origin in the building, near the back wall of the building. and -- we have that area quarantined off. they're bringing in numerous investigators this morning. we anticipate sometime between
7:00 and 7:30 for them to arrive. and we're hoping for more answers later today. >> we saw in many area photos the number -- the amount of trash, debris that was around that structure. did that add, do you believe, to the blaze? >> um, in this case, it was a lot of art. and personal projects. and design -- it was not personal trash in this side yard. it didn't appear to be personal trash. it wasn't a hoarding situation per se. the heavy fire load was intense. and obviously would have a hard time for people to get out of the building. >> such an emotional toll, ma'am, on everyone. the responders, as well. how are they doling with everything? >> i think everybody is dealing with it the best they can. obviously, the raw emotions.
we set up at our union hall yesterday for the anticipation of many firefighters that just wanted to kind of watch football together. and chill. and eat some pizza. and, kind of debrief with their pierce before going home to their families. sometimes it helps to kind of offload those emotions before bringing it home. >> i know you have been on the job for almost 20 years. nothing can prepare you for something like this. we appreciate your time. know that our thoughts and prayers are with the responders, the fam is, even there. thank you so much. >> thank you very much. >> again, when you see the scene and how quickly it wept up in flames. >> a horrifying scene. we'll follow that. right now, the flooding across the gulf coast. heavy rain soaking towns from texas to carolinas. rescue crews working around the clock. cold son the way as well. ginger is back with the latest. good morning, ginger. >> i am. coming with not such great news. texas city, texas.

>> reporter: and paul ryan said the president-elect's twitter tirades don't bother him at all. >> who cares what he tweeted on some thursday night if we fix the country's big problems? that's the way i look at it. >> reporter: ryan, who has clashed with trump in the past sayin say says he talks to him all the time. >> they're working on the agenda to take on in january. there seems to be dipss on health care and taxes. >> no question. you see the differences play out in terms of the policies. i think that is what's going on with this expanding list of secretary of state. genuine divisions on where to go. >> go from four to nine? >> it works on "the apprentice." you start big and pare down. >> let's ask martha raddatz. this is a big list. it continues to grow.
it could be bad news for the ones already on it. >> i guess you could, george. admiral stavridis. he has experience. i think you'll see him probably go back over the original list as well. and maybe mitt romney again. >> we'll see. could be a week or two away. meantime, martha, this phone call to check to the taiwan neez president over the weekend. you saw mike pence yesterday on "this week" kind of downplay this. this was a dstrategy. >> any call to or from a president-elect is a big deal. especially when the phone line has been quiet for decades. it can be seen as way to send message to china with a bit of cover, since donald trump has not yet taken office. mike pence can easily say this
doesn't mean there's a shift in poli policy. yet this puts china on notice that things may not be the same under a trump presidency. now to a scary moment at a pizza restaurant. a gunman with an targeting a washington, d.c., spot, at the center of a fake news story about hillary clinton. senior justice koernd pierre thomas is there in washington and has the details. >> reporter: this case shows how fake news can lead to a dangerous situation. edgar welch has been arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. he showed up at the d.c. pizza restaurant to get to the bottom of what appears to be an utterly bogus story about child abuse promoted on the internet. he alemedly pointed the gun and fired the weapon inside the restaurant. the origin of this crazy story was a posting on wikileaks involving john podesta

>> he owns stock in the company building the pipeline. >> the trump transition wanted to make clear that has nothing to do with his decision. to amy with today's other top stories. you have a plane scare? >> that's right. a pilot of a united express plane was forced to make an emergency landing. heading to mexico from houston when the landing gear malfunctions. nose of the plane slammed into the ground forcing emergency chutes to doe ploy. >> if you hear the command evacuate, evacuate, evacuate, you are to leave everything behind. and i mean everything. >> wow, sthat not an announcement anyone wants to hear. remarkably, no serious injuries. jury deliberations resume today in the trial of michael sleigher. he's accused of killing walter scott. on friday, the jurors said they could not reach a verdict.

shooting mcknight. this morning, he's not facing any charges. authorities suggesting louisiana's stand your ground self-defense law would play a part in the case. >> if he was man enough to pull the trigger, he should be man enough to take his lick and still be in jail. >> reporter: authorities say it started thursday afternoon when one driver cut the other off. two driving almost six miles before stopping at this light. gaszer's blue car in the right lane. mcknight's suv on the right shoulder. witnesses report arguing. mcknight got out of the suv and approached the open passenger side window. >> mr. gaszer was in his vehicle when he fired three shots. >> reporter: the coroner said one wound grazed his left hand. the second endered his shoulder. it came in at an angle? >> yes. >> reporter: three shell
occasionings on the rear floorboard of the car. witnesses say after the shooting, gaszer got out of his car. >> he was like this at the window. and then, once he moved from the window, he walked around to the front part of the car, and he kept the gun. he kept his arm locked. >> reporter: this, not gaszer's first road rage incident. abc news learning he was arrested ten years ago for punching another driver at gas station at this same intersection. charges were later dropped. there have been conflicting witness reports. family of mcthooigt getting an independent autopsy looking for answers. we have spoken to several businesses in the area that say they turned over security video to authorities. >> let's bring in dan abrams along with the former dallas police chief david brown. you may remember his leadership after the police murders in july. welcome to abc news.
you're joining us as a contributor. this is your first official day. glad you could be with us this morning. >> thank you so much, george. good morning. >> let's start with the decision of this sheriff. walk us through the steps of this decision. >> this process is not unusual. an investigative process when there is a shooting involved and someone is deceased. really involves interviewing witnesses, collecting evidence. trying to make an assessment. it's not unusual not have a judgment immediately and to release suspect who is may have given statements, cooperated. but may later face charges based on the evidence that we collect. >> that's an important point, dan. shooter could still face charges. legally, the shooting could be justified. >> under louisiana law, your car is treated like your home. meaning if you believe reason pli you need to use deadly force prevent someone from entering your car or entering your home, that can be consider adjust if
ied shooting. meaning you don't have to feel like you personally were in danger. like you personally could get harmed. you have to be able to say that you reason ply believed you were firing to keep someone out of your car. the fact that they found shell casings on the floor of the car makes that a relevant issue in the context of the investigat n investigation. >> what else are investigators looking for right now? >> one of the key pieces of evidence is the physical evidence is, the distance. the trajectory of the weapon. how far away? is there gun powder residue? and video. there might be closed caption video from adjacent businesses. traffic intersection. cities will have cameras often times at traffic intersections. all of that will be more the comprehensive nature of the process. >> does it matter who started this? >> it matters a little bit. more importantly, is who ended
it. the most important question is, what happened in the moments before the shooting? but let's remember. if it's true that he got out of his car and was somehow, eyewitnesses have said, he was out of his car, firing a shot. then this whole self-defense, the whole stand your ground doesn't matter. this is only a question of, if he can somehow demonstrate, in conjunction with the shell casings and other physical evidence, if the authorities believe he was in his car the whole time and that he reasonably believed mcknight was trying to get in his car. not yelling at him from outside but trying to get in, then it's the possibility that the authorities could say, we don't think we have a case here. >> chief, there have been some protests. what is your message to the community? >> it's easy to con inflate all the shootings that happened. this looks like will smith's shooting in new orleans. like trayvon martin. each case stands other its own
merits. we have to be cognizant of the condolences to the family. this grieving process is difficult. they're very anxious, frustrated, maybe angry. this plays into how the community reacts as well. i would caution those to wait for the facts, let the investigative process play out before you make those type of judgments, whether or not there are problems with what is happening. >> chief brown, thank you for joining us here at abc. dan abrams. >> great to have chief brown. >> it really is. will ivanka trump be the most powerful first daughter in history? plus, the hatchable toys. one of the holiday's hottest gifts. could they be bad for you kids? , pain from a headache can make this... feel like this. all-in-one cold symptom relief from tylenol®, the #1 doctor recommended pain relief brand. tylenol® when you have a cold, pain from chest congestion can make this...

trump. "the new york times" without a story that she could be one of the most powerful first daughters in history. jacob, you write about how all kinds of power broebers are seeking her out. >> yes, there certainly are. sheryl sandberg has sought her out. leonardo dicaprio had a meeting with her and brought a copy of his documentary. trump was talking to nancy pelosi on the phone right after the election. at the end of that, she began to talk about women's rights. he handed the phone off to ivanka. zh y >> you talked about three progressives. lee lib rals. there is hope that she could be a moderating force on her dade? >> there's hope. whether it's realist sick more questionable. his first pick at the epa, it
does not look like climate change is about to be a priority for him. if you look at ivanka trump's brand, it's not been about hard issues. it's been about empowerment as a sales technique. you have women's issues that then take you to coat sales. and jewelry. >> let's talk about her brand. as you mentioned, she is a savvy businesswoman. she said she was going to be a daughter and not have an official role at the white house. how is her father's presidency going to affect her brand? >> i think she'll have more attention. good or bad remains to be seen. their audience is bigger than when he was on "the apprentice." obviously. she's got a problem with millennial women. when your far is the first president in history talking about grabbing women, you know, the way that he did, it does make it more complicated if your
message is the empowerment of women. >> there was a lot of backlash when that tape came out. thank you, jacob. now to one of the holiday's hottest toys called hatchimals. some parents are scrambling to track them down. there are questions about the product. child development specialist dr. elizabeth lombardo is here. what are some of the concerns? >> some experts are concerned that these type of toys interfere with optimal psycho-social development. we gave kids plox in the olden days. we thould construct and create something. or a stifd animal, they could develop empathy. these types of toys that spoon-feed our children may be interfering with that development. we want to make sure as parents that we limit the amount of time
that they spend on them. sflit just seems hard to believe this little guy could -- >> cause so much trouble. he's so popular. he's causing trouble for parents. this is a new term to me. toy guilt? >> yeah. yeah. and what parent needs more guilt, right? the first thing to remember as parents is giving in to every whim for our children doesn't make them happier. it makes them entitled. that is the best way to make your child miserable right now and in the future. keep in mind that the holidays are about gratitude. so practice gratitude as a family. have happy meal that has nothing to do with french fries. when you turn to the person next to you, you talk about what you admire in that person. remember happiness opportunity come from things. it comes from experiences. so what kinds of experiences can you create for your family. maybe new holiday traditions that can bring you closer. >> great advice. >> very good. we're going to get to tiger
woods big return. a familiar red shirt back on the golf course sunday. woods competed in a tournament for the first time in more than 15 months. we see it right there. the swing looked pretty good. we saw some glimpses of the old tiger. but mixed bag. >> mixed bag. 466 days. i think, overall, an absolutely positive takeaway for tiger woods after the back surgeries and 15 months away. there were some wretched moments, we saw, without question. also a moment, for just a blip in time saturday, two shots off the lead. you felt the electricity around the course that only this guy can deliver to the sport. the teeth of the nfl season, college football rankings out, what with we talking? golf. because it has one central figure. the guy in the red shirt. >> that got robin laughing over there. is it fair to say that tying sir back on track? >> if i had a dollar for every time i've been asked that question by everyone i have ever
encountered? he wants to play a full schedule. probably 18, 20 events. the fact that he walked five days including the pro-am. he didn't feel any visible pain or talked about pain. >> he was swinging pretty hard. >> he swung very hard, george, exactly. he untleeshd driver. he had a two-way miss. bad thing. golf term, i get it. but ultimately, a huge takeaway in the positive column here. he had 24 birdies. a little bit of wonk talk. the only guy with more was the winner. jordan spieth said, if you take the rust off, i expect him to compete. guys are very excited about him coming back. the human tide of the sport. thank you all. coming up, linsey davis has an important alert for everyone. >> good morning, amy. with the holidays quickly approaching, a warning this morning as criminals posing as
